CTO Model,System,Seaglider 1K Amerigo


In spring 2012 OGS acquired a Seaglider (manufactured by the IROBOT). This autonomous instrument is designed to measure water properties in the top 1000 m of the water column and equipped with pumped CTD, oxygen, chlorophyll florescence and turbidity sensors.
